Burcina Park

Burcina Park is a historic garden located on a low hill at the foot of the Alps in the Biella territory. The origins of the park date back to 1800 when the Piacenza family began planting the first trees. Today, Burcina offers visitors the pleasant atmosphere of a park where, in addition to the botanical perspective, the landscaping is given particular importance: a romantic lake, meadow areas surrounded by woods, a wooded area of beech trees, the tulip tree lane, the valley of rhododendrons (in mid-May, this area offers a spectacular view of a blooming rhododendrons), the Mediterranean area and the magnificent views of the mountains and the plains. The park is particularly appreciated in the spring and summer for its magnificent flowers, but also during autumn for the changing colours of the foliage. Inside the reserve, there are picnic areas. At a few minutes from the entrance, visitors can take advantage of the Parco Burcina refreshment point and environmental education centre, and guided tours are also available. People over 65 years of age or people with disabilities may use their own vehicles to explore the park, on Thursdays from 8:30am to 6:00pm and on Saturdays from 9:00 to 11:00am.
